Lyrics

Take Away
(from A Little Princess)
Music and lyrics by Mel Atkey

Take away the badge of honour
Take away the wall of pride
Take away the pulses racing
When we beat the other side
Take away the flag unfurling
Take away the wants of men
Take away the tribal glory
Freedom must be born again
Take away what may divide us
Take away the martinet
Persevere, but woe betide us
We can still be bullies yet
Take away the chauvinism
All the things that cause us pain
Take away the moral schism
Letting only love remain
Honour to men who respect one another
Never again to pit brother against brother
People seldom fight for glory
Pageantry is all for show
Heroes tell another story
People fight for who they know
All the flags of many nations   
Cannot make the people free
No, my only motivation’s
Bringing Sara home to me
